Interested in becoming involved with the ministries of Neighbors Plus? There are several ways to get plugged in .... please come join us!
Alternative Suspension Program:
Do you own a business or work someplace that would welcome a small group of kids? We take our ASP students on “Career Explore” opportunities and would love to bring them to your place of employment for a tour and to gain additional information.
Class meets twice a week and we welcome anyone that speaks English! Please come converse with students that are from all over the world. Whether you can come once a week or once a month, we would love to have you join us!
Kids Hope: If you love spending time with kids and have one hour a week to spare during school hours, this is the ministry for you! We are paired with Lakeshore Elementary School, which is part of West Ottawa Public Schools.
After School Recess (ASR): If you are a high school junior or older, we would love to have you join us on Wednesday evenings to spend time with our ASR kids. We meet from approximately 4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m., and spend time doing crafts, service projects, homework, and devotions. We then eat dinner together during Community Night before the kids head off to their youth ministry activities.
During the summer, we meet in a designated location off the church campus, and do activities with school-aged children. We are there Monday-Friday from 11:30 – 1:00, and West Ottawa provides a hot lunch. We are there to build a relationship and spend time getting to know the area children. Please come join us for just one week this summer!
Park2Park Half-Marathon & 5k – an annual fundraiser that helps sustain the ministries of Neighbors Plus.
If you aren’t a runner, but would still like to be a part of the race, we need you! Come join us at the fairgrounds or on the course as we guide and encourage the runners. It’s held the fourth Saturday of September, with the start and end of the race at the Ottawa County Fairgrounds. The 2018 race is September 22, with a start time of 8:00 a.m.
